    Story

    We have had the pleasure of knowing Trudi and Westley Foster since we all met when our children were 6 weeks old. Since then we've all been through our own personal dramas and plodding through life making our life plans together. We've laughed together 😂, we've cried many tears together 😪 and we've been drunk and disorderly together 😂 This is the very sad fact though!! This could happen to anyone, ANYONE and it's so sad that this is happening to a family we have watched grow together and share life changing moments with. Life can be so unfair at times. You always ask the questions. Why them? Why now? Why Why Why!!! This is now our time to step up and do something for them. Time is limited and we need to make these memories count as from today!!! In the space of 3 ....yes only 3 weeks he has gone from a fit and healthy man to a very ill man diagnosed with an incurable Stage 4 aggressive brain tumour. Absolutely heart breaking news for Trudi and his family to cope with but then to be told he's been given a prognosis of just 18 months. We need your help, however small to make his time with his family count NOW! Not in 6 months ... not in a year ... NOW!!! If you know Trudi she's a very private person but we've stepped in to do something positive for her, Wes and the family, as friends who care. What do you give a person whose being so strong for her family whilst her husband has been diagnosed with an incurable aggressive brain tumour ??!! Nothing seems appropriate SO WE are providing her with the ability to create cherished memories with the time they have left together. Even if it's just a quiet weekend away, a trip to Euro Disney or a trip to the moon .... the possibilities are endless with YOUR help BUT just think of this: this time in 18 months there will be a little boy of 9 stepping up to be the man of the house for his mummy and a little girl of 6 trying to understand why her daddy isn't here anymore to share moments like giving her away on her wedding day
